You would like to think as a fan when a season start's your team has a chance to win, however how would you as a fan feel knowing your team has no chance of winning going into a season? Now this can be said of all sports fans in all of sports, but NFL football adds another level of pressure for it's fan because of the 16 game schedule. In major league baseball or NBA basketball a four of five game losing streak is not the end of a season for most of it's teams and fans. But in the NFL if your team go's on that kind of losing streak in almost all cases season over see you next year. There's a lot of reasons teams fail to make it to the top of the mountain, ( ownership, coaching, injuries, or maybe personnel ) regardless of the reasons, being a fan of a team with no chance of winning is very painful.

As a die hard Packers fan for over 40 years, I remember the Packer team's of the 70's and 80's who had little or no chance of winning. 20 seasons only two playoff appearance and only three winning season. So i know what it feel like to be a fan of a team you know can't win. I've listed 12 teams I believe have no chance of winning this coming season and most of them have a common theme quarterback. Of the 12 teams three of them have QB's who have show the promise they might be able to win in the NFL. ( Cleveland's Colt Mccoy, Jacksonville's, David Garrard, and Buffalo's Ryan Fitzpatrick ) But theses three teams have a lot more to overcome then QB.

For anyone who has read my blogs you know what I think of the quarterback position. Without a bonafide leader at that position you just can't win consistently. I could have added a few more teams to my list but decided on my bottom 12. This whole CBA lockout mess has all but guarantee's a very bad season of football for a lot of teams in the NFL, and theses 12 teams in particular will be hit hardest this coming season. There is always a surprise team or two that pop up every season, however I don't think it will be coming out of this group of 12 teams on my list. So to the fans of any team on my list I feel your pain.
